Village Voice's Description
In recent years, it's become common to see Bushwick bars double as daytime coffee shops and live performance spaces. Goodbye Blue Monday hits that aesthetic, and a little more. From the creative DIY sign outside to their funky collection of art inside, the characteristics of this bar might be off-putting or overwhelming at first. But by embracing the neighborhood's gentrification, Goodbye Blue Monday has become a go-to spot for freelancers. A day begins with coffee, free wifi, brunch, then moves into happy hour, some comedy or music, booze (only beer and wine, though), and perhaps a late night bite from the kitchen, which closes at midnight. Top it off with a two dollar PBR, and it's possible to spend an entire day at Goodbye Blue Monday. And the easy-going bartenders won't mind, either. --Briana Cheng
Tips from foursquare
Go to Goodbye Blue Monday, listen to some eclectic noise-rock and smoke like a rockstar in the backyard.
Funky and dark serving good coffee, delicious meatloaf and great live music almost every night of the week. Hang out with Buffy the bartender.
For true dive bar value, head over before their plans to spruce things up a bit take shape and listen to the best band you’ve never heard of.
A place ripe for a massive game of eye-spy. Try it, I dare you.
Try the seasonal specials, in the summer it's sake lemonade, in the winter its hot alky cider. Both are awesome.
